Virtual Meeting February 17th About Upcoming Connecticut Avenue, Jones Bridge Road Project
On Wednesday, February 17th, at 6PM, the Maryland State Highway Administration is hosting a virtual information meeting about an upcoming intersection reconfiguration project on MD-185 (Connecticut Avenue) at Jones Bridge Road and Kensington Parkway in Chevy Chase.
The project will include widening Jones Bridge Road to accommodate an additional left turn lane from eastbound Jones Bridge Road to northbound MD 185.
Pedestrian safety improvements will include a new pedestrian refuge island in the median of Jones Bridge Road on the eastern side of the intersection, as well as a new shared-use path along Jones Bridge Road between Platt Ridge Drive and North Chevy Chase Elementary School.
On the southwest corner of the intersection, crews will remove the channelized right-turn lane in order to improve pedestrian safety by slowing turning drivers.
Project construction is scheduled to begin later this Spring, and be completed in 2023.
The virtual project meeting on Wednesday February 17th, at 6PM will be livestreamed online. A recording of the livestream will be posted on the project webpage, where further details about the project are also available.
